As early as 17 days ago the Cincinnati Bengals sat at No. 32 on seemingly every list of NFL Power Rankings on the Internet.

They're too young.

The defensive won't be able to get over the loss of star CB Johnathan Joseph.

Bengals fans hoping for Andrew Luck must be disappointed.

A good win in Cleveland and a close loss at Denver has the Bengals at 1-1 heading into their Week 3 home opener against the 1-1 San Francisco 49ers.
